Clay County officials today charged three persons with the kidnapping of Carol A. Thomas, whose body was found Thursday in a wooded field.
The suspects charged today are James P. Reardon, 23, address unknown; Jennifer L. Saling, 21, of Holt, Mo., and Erik R. Zimmerman, 29, of Excelsior Springs.
The three were arrested Thursday. Bond for each was set at $1 million.
Witnesses had seen Thomas, 23, being beaten and then stuffed into the trunk of a car Wednesday night in Excelsior Springs. The burned-out car was found hours later near Lawson.
